C, assuming the defenseman plays D at an elite level.

Went with "C". There isn't enough information about the goaltender...how many games is that measured over, how many minutes played, what is his defensive corps like...

With a good two-way D you can erase a lot of mistakes and create a lot of opportunities...

I think too many people are looking too far into the stats.

Do you want:

A) Elite Sniper
B) Elite Playmaker
C) Elite Defenseman
D) Elite Goalie

I think that's more or less what the poll is about.

all we have to decide are stats.

there is a big difference between an elite d-man who scores 65p and is +12 playing 25 minutes and an elite d-man who scores 80p, is +50 playing 30 minutes.

there is a big difference between an elite goalie who is .917, 2.45 and one who is .940, 1.82.

I meant to just describe player types, but if we're going by today's players, then I'd say this is:

Ovechkin
Malkin/Crosby
Green/Boyle
Mason/Price

There's simply no good way to quantify defense/2-way play (at least not one devised yet).
